Los Angeles-based Teledyne Controls, a business unit of Teledyne Technologies Inc., said it was selected by Thales as the standard data acquisition system supplier for the Sukhoi Superjet 100 Aircraft. Under the agreement, Teledyne Controls will supply its Integrated Flight Data Management Unit (IFDMU), a unit designed to perform flight data acquisition, aircraft condition monitoring and data recording. The IFDMU supplied for the Sukhoi SuperJet 100 Aircraft is a customized version of Teledyne’s Flight Data Interface Management Unit (FDIMU). The FDIMU is a compact and integrated data acquisition and recording system, which combines into a single Line Replaceable Unit multiple functions of traditionally separated systems. Manufactured by Sukhoi Civil Aircraft, a unit of Sukhoi Company, Russia’s major aircraft holding company, the Superjet 100 is a passenger regional jet featuring 75 and 95 seats. The first test flight is scheduled for September and the first aircraft deliveries are anticipated for the end of 2008.
